It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Why it's important to link "real" life with "net" life

A good friend of mine died last week, a really REALLY good friend and here's the thing: like almost everybody reading this, she was a net friend. i never met her face to face.

I didnt even have her phone number.

If her brother had not been aware of Jen's rich net life and friendships dozens of folks would be wondering just where the hell Jen was.

So, this is important, people.

If you have friends you love on the net TELL SOMEBODY IN YOUR MUNDANE LIFE.

Tell them some email addresses
Tell them where your blog is, so they can leave a comment explaining what happened.
Tell them how to reach an IRC channel, or a url to a forum you frequent.

Alternately, tell a few trusted net friends how to contact somebody in your non-net life if you disappear.

The ripples will spread from there. it's important.

In my case, Sam knows where Callahans is, we met there. And he has my login info for this LJ, and he would post here if anything serious were going on. You'll read it here first.

If any of you died and I didn't know, if I thought you'd just disappeared, or I slowly realized you'd died, it would tear my heart out. So make sure somebody you can count on is able and willing to get the word out. Please, because all of us nameless, faceless friends out here, we may never have a beer with you. But the love we feel for you is REAL. Don't leave us hanging.

I am making a list for Sandra NOW. Is that the Jen I think it is? I am...stunned.

Yes. :( Jen Koplitz died last week of heart failure. Haven't been able to find you on AIM to tell you. New username?

Go back a few entries in my LJ and you'll find the memoriam I wrote for her.

Hadn't thought of that. Thanks!

Thanks for the idea. So many people read my husband that know me, it never occurred to me to perhaps have him post here as well.

It's something I've been thinking about but haven't done anything about. That changes today. Thanks.

I lifted you up in prayer at church yesterday. I hadn't read about your wife before we left for church. We'll be adding her to the church prayers next week as well.

Sam and I are thinking about you both, and all of us are praying for you. If you need to talk, let us know, we've got all you can eat long distance, and we're also available via email and instant messengers.


Today is is another difficult day for me, I have been bouncing around the net reading some of the things people are saying, and it keeps me in tears, I loved my sister and it makes me so happy to know that there are so many people that cared for her. I cannot find one person that should know, I understand that Marsha and Jen had a falling out but I couldn't imagine it was so serious she would not wanat to know about Jen's passing. If you know Marasha (aka emma something), would you please email me at gerald@gkoplitz.net and let me know the information so I can talk to her.
